A demonstration of my use of masking and layering in After Effects. I had the idea of using different hand signals, while a moving background plays in the back, taking the viewer on a sort of guided tour. I researched and gathered a bunch of different signals that focused on one thing: protesting. If read carefully, the video demonstrates a desperate experience. Following people you trust is crucial in a dire situation. Some of the hand signals include “There’s water here,” and “Police up ahead.” There’s danger in our paths, but proper guidance and experience can go a long way.
